The new technology saves power and cooling costs in cloud-based datacenter environments and extends battery life in portable applications.
An innovative HyperGear algorithm included in IDT’s power management ICs recognizes the need for higher CPU speed when running data-intensive programs such as games and videos, or during heavy internet traffic on cloud-based enterprise servers. Under these demanding conditions, HyperGear automatically and safely over-clocks the CPU to improve performance and concurrently shorten the duration required for processing. During rest periods, HyperGear scales down the clock frequency for improved efficiency. In sum, these dynamic frequency and voltage controls allow computers to run faster while reducing net energy consumption under typical operating conditions.
HyperGear uses a proprietary two-wire serial interface bus to link IDT CPU power management chips to the IDT clock console. Using Voltage ID (VID) information and monitoring the output load, HyperGear will dynamically adjust the CPU’s core voltage and clock frequency, without the need for additional external components or complex circuit design. IDT has started utilizing the technology on all current and future power management solutions that comply with industry standard specifications, such as VR12, making it easy to realize the benefits of a HyperGear solution on new and existing platforms.
